This was a fun day, meeting female founders and hearing what you’re up to —
grassroots movements for trailblazing women, ‘bingeable books on international careers’, Dropbox for your website, crowd-sourced seasonal travel recommendations…
and what you’re up against —
product/market fit, VC or no C, marketing, CRM, how to be a better boss to yourself.
Thanks for coming out, and here to your next steps! show lessDelete

Thanks to Mary-Lea Awanohara of The Displaced Nation for these kind words!
“When the Displaced Nation first started, Anastasia Ashman, an American living in Istanbul, was running a blog tailored to the needs of the “thinking expat.”
“It seemed almost too good to be true: a group of women who were passionate about telling stories that illustrated the impact of the expat life on a person’s psyche. Had Anastasia rubbed a magic lamp to conjure up a kind of foreign harem? After all, her site was called Expat+HAREM. The work she created on the basis of her Turkish expat life has lived on in her wake.”
So glad to see this great interview with Katie Belliel and Rose Deniz about their upcoming anthology Sofra: A Gathering of Foreign Voices Around the Turkish Table.
